Which Special Scheme have you've seen the most?, it seems just about every airport I go to the California Flag scheme seems to come in.

The Singapore Airlines Tropical Megatop.

Silly SIA. You should have put that on all of your planes.

You made a mistake. Shame on you!

At Singapore Changi Airport, the Gulfair A340-300 in the 50th Anniversary "calligraphy" livery A4O-LD is a very regular sighting.

Up till the time when the SIA Tropical Megatop was still flying around, I could swear that the Gulfair beauty was a more common sight, often doing the BAH-SIN-SYD route.

Thai's A300-600R HS-TAO in the Star Alliance livery is also quite a regular visitor, as are Qantas' Wunala Dreaming VH-OJB and F1 Melbourne Grand Prix VH-OJC (QF operates so many flights to SIN and chances of these visiting are consequently higher).

CX Flyboy, have you actually flown B-HOX (as pilot)?
Which type of aircraft do you fly?

I think I see VH-ANA, the Sydney 2000 plane from Ansett Australia, more than ever. Even more than B-HOX (in HKG). Or should I call VH-ANB the special color scheme?

Those ghastly Qantas 744s painted in Wunala Dreaming and Nalanji something or other schemes(aboriginal). I have never seen an uglier scheme than those.
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I saw the SAA Special Scheme at LHR every time I went there. Different airlines Star Alliance schemes are above that, but I have seen BD, UA, Austrian, etc.

I fly the 747-400s, and yes I have flown on B-HOX several times. Fortunately from the inside, it is the same as the others, except for a plasticised card for the pax to say that they have flown on the Spirit Of Hong Kong.

Japan Airlines B747-300, Reso'cha. In daily NRT-SEL JL951/2.

BTW, what date is Thai King's birthday? I think I've seen Thai put '72th anniversary' sticker on its fuselages over 5 months.

I agree, Qantas' scheme of aboriginal paintings doesn't fit in at all with the colours.
I think they should have something LESS ghastly and put on something that represents Australia - eg. Ayers Rock etc.

That scheme is truly ghastly and I hope they get rid of it soon!!!
I love the SIA Tropical Megatop - if only it were still with us.

I like both Wunala Dreaming(744) & Nalanji Dreaming (743), and I have photos of them in NZAA...they are probably the most common colour schemes to come into NZAA(maybe 2-3times per month), though VH OJC is also seen quite often.
